Trip Planning FAQs
What are the places that I should not miss in Delhi?
As the capital city with a long history, Delhi is endowed with many worth-seeing cultural heritages and splendid monuments. The most popular attractions among the history lovers are: Qutub Minar - a five-storey tapering tower, Humayun's tomb - the Baby Taj, India Gate - a monumental arch, Red Fort - a historic fort complex, and Jama Masjid - one of the biggest mosques in India. Besides, taking a rickshaw ride in the Chandni Chowk, an old market street in Delhi, is also a unique experience you can't miss in your Delhi tour package.
When is the best time to travel to Delhi?
We suggest you arrange your Delhi tour package in winter, from October to March, when the climate is pleasant. India has a tropical monsoon climate. The scorching hot in July will make your travel suffer and the rich rain in monsoon season from July to September will bring inconvenience. Even if you plan your Delhi tour in the best time, it is still recommended to bring sun blocks for your visits.
Is it safe to walk around in Delhi?
Yes, it is safe for travelers to take a walk in Delhi. But we suggest you arrange your stroll in the daytime and avoid walking in the secluded back streets. Your personal safety is ensured as violence crime is uncommon in India, let alone against the foreigners. However, trivial crimes like stealing still exist. It is advisable to watch over your valuables when taking a Delhi tour, especially at the crowded areas. Meanwhile, the traffic in Old Delhi is a bit chaotic and congested, we recommend you stay in the footpaths and be careful when crossing the roads.
Is tap water safe to drink in India?
No, we don't recommend you to drink tap water when taking a Delhi tour. The underground water in India is seriously polluted by the factories. So drinking tap water may make you feel uncomfortable or get ill. The bottled water offered by us for free and the water in the restaurants is safe for your Delhi tour.
Do you suggest to have a try of street food in Delhi?
Yes, but it is critical to choose the suitable restaurants and food. Due to the spicy ingredients or poor sanitation, some travelers will get diarrhea after sampling. We suggest you try the freshly cooked hot street food at the restaurants or vendors with good hygiene. It is recommended to take a Delhi private tour. According to your food preference, your local guide will take you to the restaurants and stalls with authentic tastes and cleaner environments.
How about the public transportation in Delhi?
Being the capital of India, Delhi is equipped with a well-planned transportation system providing various ways for traveling. You can arrange your Delhi tour by bus, metro, taxi at an affordable expense. If you feel adventurous, taking a rickshaw ride will also be an unforgettable experience. However, if you want a more comfortable transfer, we recommend you take a Delhi private tour with your own driver as the public transports are always badly crowded.
